I do really adore Taylor Lautner. He is beautiful and amazing to watch in action sequences. I think this sort of role suits him better than the Twilight Saga (not that I'm not a huge fan - I am!!) in that it's not quite so melodramatic. That said, given that the premise of this movie is that he finds out the people who have called themselves his parents really aren't and there are lies and secrets right and left, there is a lot of drama and Lautner pulled it off beautifully.Read more ›
Then they tried to make it look like Nathan (Taylor Lautner) was crying. A high school production team could have done better on his fake tear effects (and probably the whole film for that matter.) Heck you could have easily edited in the effects with any entry level video editing program and it would have looked better.
According to Wikipedia the budget was $35million. I honestly don't know what they spent the money on because you could have rented all the cars in this movie, bought some cheap pyrotechnics, editing software, tickets to the game and train ticket, hell even bought the cameras and other tech... still not even get close to $35mil and could have made this film with money to spare. Ok sure you need a good stunt team and they did hire some A list or former A list actors... but to abuse their talent in this film is just not right.
I honestly don't know how this made it to the theaters other the fact that Taylor Lautner was in it so perhaps they were targeting the teenage girl crowd and getting some of the Twilight fans to watch. Even then I would be insulted if I saw this in the theater and was part of that demographic. This should have gone straight to DVD/BlueRay or Netflix.
Speaking of Ms. Collins, she and Lautner had absolutely zilch for chemistry. The kissing/panting/hugging scenes were cringe-worthy, they were so bad. The relationships between the other actors and actresses were only slightly more believable. And I do mean slightly. The story was excessively slow and boring. Oh, and, did I mention that the one black kid in the picture is also a criminal who forges ID cards?
So, what, exactly happens in this yawn fest? (spoilers ahead -- do yourself a favor, and read this and skip the film) A kid is raised by "foster" parent/agents, after his mother is murdered and while his CIA father continues his work as a CIA agent. When he stumbles across a fake "missing persons" site with his picture on it, a host of baddies end up on his trail -- and the wooden hero and his tedious lady fair must sort the rogue agents from the good guys, and find a way to thwart the villain. Of course, they do, and the bad guys all get what they deserve. The viewer, on the other hand, is left with a sort of sick feeling in the pit of her stomach as she wonders, "How in heaven's name could I not have something better to do than watch that?"
1/5 stars. This one is a perfect combination of "bad" that makes for an incredible stinker.
